Is Facebook a Good Idea to Promote my Writing? And Other Opinions

I had one of my sisters put up a facebook page on her profile. I’ve heard all kinds of stories about facebook and I am not sure I want to be there but I did get hits on the ‘wall’ pretty quick that said they would check out my books so maybe it is another avenue to get my work into the public hands.

So…where did our snow go? We did not get it here as predicted. Not even on the day we have decided is the REAL Christmas day. Let me explain.

The first year we moved to this area we prayed for snow at Christmas. We got snow on the 27th, second year, third year the same thing so we had decided Christmas must REALLY be on the 27th. This year though it didn’t pan out. So much for predicting the seasons by praying for what we want.

I guess this could be a lesson for other things we pray for. Just because natural phenomenon goes our way sometimes doesn’t neccessarily mean it was an answer to our prayer.

I think about other things, such as a recent post I saw about someone praying for the right person to come along in their life. Bingo. This great guy shows up and the girl is just sure he’s the right one.

First off, she just met him at a restaurant. Next he is an atheist and has no interest in her God…but he is a nice guy, very polite and caring. She must have thrown out the scripture about being unequally yoked and accepted a date. Wrong choice by the Word. She should have witnessed Christ to him and left him alone. Now she’s in a turmoil because she thinks she’s in love and the guy still has no inclinations for accepting Christ. Lesson is, God answers prayer but not against His Word. She could have maintained a friendship with the guy and let God decide the guy’s spiritual future. She put the cart before the horse so to speak and a lot of young (and old) believers do that thinking that they can change a person. Only God has the power to do that.

Then there is another whole area in this story that can happen. The guy could have faked a conversion (which I have seen) just to get the girl. Be diligent in chosing a lifetime commitment. If you pray with an open mind and not emotions, the spirit will reveal the truth. It is hard to be alone but it is even harder to be trapped in a marriage or relationship gone to far with someone who does not share your faith in God.
I’ve known many women who settled for a ‘good man’ but in the most important part of any believer’s life, their walk with God, there is no communion, no strength together. I know when emotions and hormones and loneliness sets in it is not an easy choice but we need to just hold onto the Word, even if it breaks our heart (which the Bible says is deceitful anyway) the decision based on the Word will lead to the happy ending. The joy of the Lord is our Strength, and He will give us the real desire of our heart if we stand in that power. Not swayed to the left or right but straight on the pathway with God. This life is a vapor, short and then gone. The decisions we make with Christ in the center are eternal peace, joy and heaven bound. Whooo. get me off the soap box!! Talk to you again.
